LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say officers shot and killed an armed suspect after gunfire broke out near a nightclub at Universal CityWalk.

Sgt. Barry Montgomery says the shooting happened around 1:15 a.m. Monday in a common area outside Infusion Lounge at the popular entertainment complex in North Hollywood.

Montgomery says officers responding to a call of a disturbance at the club arrived and heard gunshots. He says they spotted a suspect with a handgun and opened fire, striking the man. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Montgomery says several people fleeing the melee were injured. A Los Angeles County Fire Department dispatcher says two people were transported to hospitals.

Witnesses tell KABC-TV someone began shooting after a fight broke out at the club, which was hosting a DJ competition.

Investigators recovered a handgun at the scene.
